Haaland and Bellingham played together at Dortmund for a couple of seasons, with the Black and Yellow signing the latter in the summer of 2020 after grabbing Haaland from Red Bull Salzburg the previous January. Now, they’re both plying their trade at European football’s highest levels–Bellingham at Man City and Real Madrid and Haaland at Real Madrid–and Haaland has praised his former teammate for his own fast start to life in Spain.

Speaking in an interview withL’Equipe, the striker said he was happy to see his former teammate Jude’s impressive debut for Real Madrid.

The pair played 63 times together for Dortmund, combining seven times – most notably against Bayern Munich in their 3-2 Klassiker loss to the Bavarians in December 2021. Madrid have been linked with a move for Haaland, but there’s been no further news on that front as yet.
